We Need Your Support!

According to a 2021 study by U by Kotex, two in five people have struggled to purchase period products—a 35% increase from 2018. Period poverty disrupts everything from school attendance to the ability to work, forcing many to choose between paying for food or period products. 

We believe that no one should have to face such difficult choices. That’s why we’re reaching out to ask for your support. Please consider donating period products through our Amazon Wishlist to support this cause. 

In partnership with Leadership Rhode Island and Amenity Aid.
